Khan’s notebook: Seider hopes to find a ‘best fit’ for this upcoming season

Among MLive’s Ansar Khan’s notes from today’s Red and White game:

Moritz Seider showed off the skating ability that was one of the reasons the Red Wings took the 6-4, 207-pound defenseman sixth overall this year.

“He can skate, he’s got some poise, he’s got good sense, he was really impressive today and throughout the week,” Horcoff said.

Seider will train in his hometown of Mannheim, Germany, before returning for prospects tournament and training camp in Traverse City. The Red Wings will then decide where he should play in 2019-20.

“We have to figure out what’s best for myself,” Seider said. “Maybe it’s in the AHL with Grand Rapids but maybe also CHL (OHL Owen Sound owns his rights). But why stay in Mannheim? I think it’s one of the best organizations in Europe. We won a championship last season. We have to figure it out where I can get the most ice time.”

Khan continues at length, addressing a wide variety of topics.
